The air quality has been worse than expected, and it doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of clearing soon. This has resulted in a lot of health-related issues for many people. Some are experiencing shortness of breath, coughing, and asthma issues. I’ve even heard that some people have been passing out due to troubled breathing. Naturally, this has caused a lot of closures in the area. We’ve got the full list of closures today in and around Sacramento, thanks to CBS13. Here are some of the major ones:
Consumnes River College is closed through Sunday. Elk Grove schools, Folsom Cordova Unified, Sacramento Unified are all closed. Sac State and UC Davis campuses are closed again today as well. Yolo County Schools are closed, Western Placer and San Juan Unified schools are all closed as well. This is just a portion of the list, check here for the complete list.
Some businesses are even closing for the day, but that’s business-by-business specific. If you work somewhere that’s closed, you probably know about it already, but if you come across any businesses that are closed, let us know about it and we can add it here. Also, since our kids are home, a lot of us have to take the day off to be with them. If you’re interested in keeping track of the actual air quality measurements, you can check this website out for the info you need.
Front Street Animal Shelter is closed due to the air quality today, and we’re hearing reports that Bradshaw Animal Shelter is closed as well.
